Amish Cinnamon Friendship Bread (with starter!!)

Delicious Amish Cinnamon Friendship bread with starter recipe. This is what friendship is truly about, sharing coffee and bread with friends!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE STARTER:
  • 1 envelope active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • FOR THE BREAD:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1 large (or two small) instant vanilla pudding (not sugar free)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • Step by Step Directions

    1. For the Starter: To prepare the starter batch, mix yeast with 1/2 cup hot water until yeast is dissolved. Add 1 1/2 cup hot water, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix until blended. Use whisk if needed. You now have enough batter for 4 portions.

      In three Ziploc freezer bags, add 1 cup of batter to each bag. These can be given away or used immediately.

      In your bowl will be a remaining one cup of batter. You can use this immediately following the directions below.

    2. For the Bread: Okay, with your 1 cup of batter, add remaining ingredients (except the last two). Mix. Will be slightly lumpy, that’s okay.

      In two loaf pans, grease generously. I like to grease my pans, lay parchment paper on just the bottom of the pan, then grease again! After greasing the pan, sprinkle with a cinnamon-sugar mix.

    3. Divide batter between two pans then generously top each battered pan with remaining cinnamon sugar mix. This is what provides a nice crunchy cinnamon layer on the bread, very important!

      Bake in a 325-degree oven for about one hour.

      Cool about ten minutes in pan, then remove to cooling racks. Delicious served hot or cold (with butter of course)! Enjoy.
